TriStar StoneCrest offers many forms of financial relief for patients without healthcare insurance (the "uninsured") needing emergent or non-elective services.
First, we have financial counselors on hand to evaluate your eligibility for various Local and State Programs, including County Assistance and Medicaid.
Charity Discount Policy
TriStar StoneCrest has a Charity Discount Policy that provides free hospital care for patients who have received non-elective care, do not meet the qualifications for Medicaid and whose income is less than 200% (in most cases) of the Federal Poverty Level. In order to qualify for this free care, you must complete a Financial Assistance Application and provide some documents to support your income. To access our full Charity Discount Policy, click here.
Uninsured Discount Policy
For patients who do not meet the Charity Discount Policy criteria and will be expected to pay for services out of pocket, TriStar StoneCrest offers a managed care-like discount. All Uninsured patients (excluding those receiving cosmetic procedures and certain "package" procedures) will be given an Uninsured Discount. To access our full Uninsured Discount Policy, click here. All pricing estimates posted below already reflect the hospital's uninsured discount.
Similar to your visits to your physician's office, we expect payment at time of service. If you are ineligible for Medicaid or Charity and cannot pay your entire estimated bill, we will work with you to set up monthly payment arrangements. If, after your services are received, any additional payment is due, we will send you information about any amount you may still owe. We accept major credit cards, checks, money orders and cash.

Prior To Your Call
Prior to your call, please contact your physician's office to get the specific diagnosis or procedure description.
When you call our Service Center, please have the following information available, so that we can provide you with the most accurate estimate possible:
- Description of services needed - we will need to know as much information as possible about the specific services as described by your physician.
- Type of Services needed - we need to know if you will be admitted to the hospital as an inpatient overnight, or if you are expected to be treated on an outpatient basis.
- Physician/Specialist Name - example, if you are having surgery, we will want to know the surgeon's name.
Where did this data come from?
We pulled data from the most recent calendar year to determine pricing on our most common surgical procedures and inpatient admissions.
If the hospital has not had at least 5 patients in the past year utilizing that service, "N/A" will appear in the pricing range. "Hospital Stay range" refers to an average length of stay in the hospital for inpatient admissions. Any hospital advertised prices or flat rates will supercede these rates.
What is not included in our estimates?
The estimates provided are only related to your hospital bill. Your personal physician or other physicians providing you with services related to your hospital stay or visit will bill you separately. This can include fees related to specialists, anesthesiologists, pathologists, and radiologists.
Independent laboratory and radiology services will also bill you separately for reading and interpreting EKG's, X-rays, EEG's and lab work. If you have questions about those bills, please call the number printed on their statements.
When you have made an informed decision and are ready to proceed with services at our facility, you should contact your physician's office to ask to have your service scheduled.
Pre-registration is available to all scheduled patients prior to the date of service and expedites the admission process. All registration information will be obtained over the telephone.
When you arrive at the facility, you will be required to provide your identification, finalize financial arrangements and sign a few forms before going to the department.
